Today, February 26th, Equity Trust Company will sponsor the first of three blood drives for LifeShare Community Blood Service at our Elyria and Berea offices.
With blood supply levels at critically low levels in Northeast Ohio, employees and members of the community are encouraged to donate. According to LifeShare, one pint of donated blood can save the lives of three people. The life of a newborn can be saved with only a teaspoon.
The mobile blood drives are open to the public and will be held at these locations:
Equity Trust Company – Elyria
9:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.
225 Burns Road
Elyria, Ohio 44035
Equity Trust Company – Berea
2:00 p.m – 5:30 p.m.
343 West Bagley Road
Berea, Ohio 44017
To donate blood, you must be at least 17 years old, weigh 110lbs and be in generally good health. All donors must bring a valid photo identification card.
